Solved Are Door/TrapDoor both 'Openable'?

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by PRLL001, Mar 1, 2020.

  1. I'm currently trying to make sure a block is either a Door or a TrapDoor and to make things easier I'm doing a conditional which validates if the block is an instance of the interface Openable, because in the documentation I saw them both extending Openable. When the block is a door it works just fine, but not for a TrapDoor...

    Here's a snippet of the code I'm using:

    Code (Java):

    if(block.getState().getData() instanceof Openable){
        //do code
    Is there any way this could be done?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!
  2. Your snippet shows the wrong Door class (org.bukkit.material.Door). The non-deprecated extends from BlockData but implements the same interfaces :x

    As to OP, for the reason mentioned above, you should be checking #getBlockState instanceof Openable, rather than BlockState#getData.

  3. getBlockState is not a thing, its Block#getState

    On that note, openable its not a block state, its a block data
    So you would get the block data via Block#getBlockData ... cast it to openable, do what you need to do, then set that block data back to the block.

  4. Ahh, so you're right. My bad

  5. Just as @ShaneBee stated, to find if an instance of a block is Openable, no matter if it's a Door or Trapdoor, I used:

    Code (Java):
    if(block.getBlockData() instanceof Openable){
        //do code
